Today's card is a special birthday card for a sweet 5-year old - the great-grand-daughter of a friend of mine. My friend requests a special card for her each year, as she is so happy to be able to share in this little one's life so regularly. Grand-children are such a blessing to us all - they are all special!
I CASEd the watery background from Amanda, of Little crafty pill - not quite as dramatic as hers, but I love the variation you get by using a home made stencil for the waves. The special birthday girl loves ballet and swimming, but as I made her a ballet themed card last year, we went with swimming this time. I hope she likes it - for her great granny, especially.
